I installed version Synergy 1.4.5 on my Mac OS 10.7 (Lion) client, as part of a test to solve a much more complicated Synergy problem.

I now find: * I can copy on the Mac and paste into Linux * I can not copy from Linux and paste into Mac

I suspect, but I'm not certain, that the Synergy 1.4.5 GUI did something odd to my Mac client -- for example, "defaults read com.apple.loginwidow LoginHook" was incorrect after running the GUI.

"killall synergyc" followd by re-running synergyc does not fix the copy/paste problem.

I've removed the old synergyc and replaced it with the 1.3.8 version -- this does not restore the previous functionality.

Question: How can I restore my copy/paste from my Mac client to my Linux server?

According to this post in the Synergy forums, the latest version of Synergy for the Mac that lets you copy from Linux and paste to the Mac is 1.3.1.

At a guess, I had 1.3.1 prior to my test of 1.4.5 and simply forgot that the latest stable Synergy simply does not have this crucial functionality.
